Sensors for Future VR Applications

International Image Sensor Workshop (IISW)

In this paper, we provide examples of some tracking and mapping functions of virtual reality sensors that illustrate the critical requirements and performance metrics. The sensor performance, form factor, power, and data bandwidth are the main challenges in a battery powered, always on VR devices.

IVD: Automatic Learning and Enforcement of Authorization Rules in Online Social Networks

IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (IEEE S&P)

In this paper, we propose Invariant Detector (IVD), a defense-in-depth system that automatically learns authorization rules from normal data manipulation patterns and distills them into likely invariants.

CAN: Creative Adversarial Networks

IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICCC)

We propose a new system for generating art. The system generates art by looking at art and learning about style; and becomes creative by increasing the arousal potential of the generated art by deviating from the learned styles. We build over Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN), which have shown the ability to learn to generate novel images simulating a given distribution.

Cultural Diffusion and Trends in Facebook Photographs

The International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM)

Online social media is a social vehicle in which people share various moments of their lives with their friends, such as playing sports, cooking dinner or just taking a selfie for fun, via visual means, i.e., photographs. Our study takes a closer look at the popular visual concepts illustrating various cultural lifestyles from aggregated, de-identified photographs.

Paradigm shift from Human Computer Interaction to Integration

Computer Human Interaction (CHI)

In 1960, JCR Licklider forecast three phases: human- computer interaction, human-computer symbiosis, and ultra-intelligent machines. Human-computer symbiosis or what we call “integration” is already well under way. This SIG will discuss how the CHI community should think about the paradigm shift from interaction to integration as designers, practitioners, researchers, and as a society.

Better Computer Go Player with Neural Network and Long-Term Prediction

International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR)

Competing with top human players in the ancient game of Go has been a longterm goal of artificial intelligence. Recent works [Maddison et al. (2015); Clark & Storkey (2015)] show that search is not strictly necessary for machine Go players. A pure pattern-matching approach, based on a Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) that predicts the next move, can perform as well as Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS)-based open source Go engines such as Pachi [Baudis & Gailly (2012)] if its search budget is limited. We extend this idea in our bot named darkforest, which relies on a DCNN designed for long-term predictions.

Passive Realtime Datacenter Fault Detection

USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI) 2017

We describe how to expedite the process of detecting and localizing partial datacenter faults using an end-host method generalizable to most datacenter applications.

Tracking the World State with Recurrent Entity Networks

International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) 2017

We introduce a new model, the Recurrent Entity Network (EntNet). It is equipped with a dynamic long-term memory which allows it to maintain and update a representation of the state of the world as it receives new data.

Episodic Exploration for Deep Deterministic Policies for StarCraft Micro-Management

International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) 2017

We consider scenarios from the real-time strategy game StarCraft as benchmarks for reinforcement learning algorithms.
